Setting the file to have 0777 permissions will allow you to read and write
it from any user on the system. However, it doesn't allow you to change the
ownership (or the permissions) unless you're its creator. Giancula suggested
chowning the file from within your PHP script, as you're still directing
from user "nobody".
